Ghorepani used to be a resting stop where ancient traders found water (pani in Nepali) for their horses (Ghora in Nepali) thus the nomenclature Ghorepani.The Ghorepani Village is settled by the Magar people and contains a number of guest houses provide accommodations and food to trekkers in the beautiful surroundings. Any lover of nature is sure to be awestruck by the breathtaking views of Mount Dhaulagiri (8167m), Tukuche, Mount Annapurna (8091m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna III (7555m), Nilgiri (6230m), Machhapuchare also known as Fishtail (6997m), and magnificent Kaligandaki Valley view.

The Ghorepani Poon hill trek is also known as the Annapurna Sunrise Trek. This trek is a moderate and short adventure for all kinds of travellers. This Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is popular because it takes trekkers to an altitude of 3210m without the strain of altitude. Throughout this trek, you will walk about 6-7 hours every day and sleep in the comforts of tea houses. The Ghorepani Poonhill trail has many places with clean accommodations, fresh organic food, and local culture.

The Ghorepani Poon hill Trek formally starts from Nayapool after a one and a half hour drive from Pokhara Valley. The trail leads past terraced farmed paddy fields and traditional Villages of Thakali and Gurung throughout Nayapool, Birethati, Hile and Tikhedunga. You will then reach the large Mager Village of Ulleri, with traditionally slated stone-roofed houses and ascends to Banthati. From Banthati, the trail leads through the beautiful alpine forest of oak, hemlock, pine, and rhododendron, crosses sparkling clear streams, past Nangathati (2460m)to Ghorepani (2874m). It is worth staying here to see the spectacular panorama and early morning before a pre-dawn trek to the top of Poonhill (3210m) to watch the sunrise. You catch the striking sunrise view on more than eight mountains and peaks like Dhaulagiri, Tuchuche, Annapurna range I- South, Nilgiri, Fishtail, and far beyond Lamjung and Manaslu. After Poonhill, the trail ascends and descends through the small Gurung Villages of Tadhapani and Ghandruk. Ghandruk is famous for its culture, tradition, and trekking. It also offers some of the best views of Annapurna South and Fishtail Mountain. The trek descends down to Nayapool through Shyauli bazaar and Birethathti along the Modi River. After reaching Nayapool, you will drive back to Pokhara and stay in a comfortable hotel.

Trip Note

ECO-FRIENDLY

Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage to all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can takes long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimizes the fuel used and to make campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveler so, just leaving foot-print on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradable which you had.
